Cordula Kehrer worked with German artisans to repaired broken/leaking plastic dustbins. There’s also a line made by indigenous Phillipino basket-weavers available at Areaware.

TAC says: “Old buckets and bins, that would be trash once they start leaking, are mended and brought back to life, using amazing basketry patches made from willow, rush and rattan. Perfect combination between sustainability, functionality and beauty.”

Personally, I love the combination of a gross, plastic, mass-produced item with handworked organic materials.
